College recognizes teacher education programs completed by distance education

September 17 2014

Good news for applicants! The Ontario College of Teachers now recognizes initial teacher education programs completed via distance education, provided:

  • the program included a face-to-face practicum that meets the College’s current requirement of a minimum of 40 days; or
  • you have had one year of teaching experience subsequent to your teacher education program and while you were certified in the jurisdiction. 

To become certified, you will still have to meet the academic and language proficiency requirements.

Learn about our certification requirements in our registration guides.
